On November 2, 2015, the EPA revised the WPS to implement stronger protections for agricultural workers, handlers, and their families. Most of the revised requirements became effective on January 2, 2017.
Three requirements go into effect on January 2, 2018:
1. Pesticide safety training must cover the expanded content
2. Pesticide safety information (posters) must meet the revised standards
3. Handlers must suspend applications if workers or other people are in the application exclusion zone.
